Jun 14, 2017

This is the story of Ginny Moon - a new Young Adult Novel by Benjamin Ludwig

To Ginny, a child with autism, the word Forever means until the police come.

Five years ago the police forcibly removed her from the home of her abusive birth mother, Gloria. Now fourteen, and in her fourth Forever Home, Ginny remains hell-bent on finding her way back to Gloria’s apartment. She has no illusions about her mother’s addictions or lack of parenting skills. She knows that it might be dangerous – that it might even kill her. Still she plots, obsessed with returning to Gloria’s to find something she insists she left behind, something she hid under her bed. Her teachers, therapist, and new Forever Parents are in turn frustrated, infuriated, and perplexed.
